French investigators are looking into the possibility that a pair of Apple mobile devices caused EgyptAir Flight 804 to crash in 2016.

According to a report by Le Parisien, French officials have ordered an investigation into whether the plane was brought down by a fire resulting from overheated mobile devices.

Officials say an Apple iPhone 6S and an iPad Mini 4 belonging to the flight's first officer may have been plugged into an improper socket in the plane's cockpit.

A trio of experts — an engineer from the French National Center for Scientific Research along with a physics professor and an engineer who specializes in battery technology, both from the country's defense ministry — have been retained to complete the investigation into the matter, Le Parisien reported.
